CD Reviews

This is a must have from the man who taught Bob harmony
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Joe Higgs is one of the founding fathers of reggae. His impact on Bob Peter and Bunny was profound. Do yourself a favor and get this terrific album."

"This is a very solid CD by one of the founders of roots reggae. At times, however, it seems slightly overproduced, sophomorically utilizing new effects of the day (1990). Aside from that, most of the songs are great! Stepping Razor (later recorded by Peter Tosh) and Sons of Garvey are my two favorite tracks. Oh Carol, Small Axe, and Blackman Know Yourself are great songs as well, exemplifying Higgs' knack for writing creative and catchy compositions. One should know that the only two CDs currently available by Joe Higgs are this one and Family, which is probably his weakest CD minus the title track. If possible try and seek out his out of print titles "Life of Contradiction, Triumph!, and Unity is Power. Any one of these discs is better in imo than Blackman and Family combined. Still if this is all you can find, do yourself a favor and pick it up before it's out of print too!"
Get a recording of this.
